Webinar recording: The role of the line manager and mentor for industry placements students
This webinar was delivered on 27 October 2021.
In this 1 hour online session, we gave an overview of what industry placements are, the role of line managers / mentors at each stage of the placement, and the government support now available to help you.
What might this look like in the current circumstances?
An industry placement is an extended period of structured time that a student spends in your workplace, developing real skills and making a meaningful contribution to your organisation. Many employers have already been offering industry placements, which will be a fundamental part of T Levels – a new course designed by employers that follows GCSEs, which combines classroom learning with a substantial placement (at least 315 hours).
